I thought I had this post all set to go yesterday . . . and…
Back in November I signed up for a mystery knit for a cowl and, as it turned out, I didn’t care for the pattern. I had purchased some pretty yarn, though, and I was committed to making a cowl and just needed to find a different pattern. The Leaving Cowl was the perfect choice.
The pattern is free and well written. It’s easy to follow and the simple leaf pattern knits up quickly.
The yarn is Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport in a beautiful shade of red called Ruby.
It’s soft and drape-y and made a lovely birthday present for Doreen.
She told me on Friday that she has worn it every day since I gave it to her back in December. A knitter can’t ask for more than that.
